REDDING, Calif. - A motorcycle driver is dead after a head-on crash with a car in Redding Sunday night. 

Police responded to a call about a crash at the intersection of Eureka Way and Sunset Drive just before 7 p.m. On scene, officers determined that a 2007 Audi was involved in a head-on crash with a 2016 Yamaha motorcycle. 

Police say the motorcyclist died in that crash. The driver of the Audi was uninjured. The driver of the Audi was wearing a seatbelt, and the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet. 

Police determined alcohol or drugs were not a factor for the driver of the Audi, but are still working to determine if they are a factor for the motorcyclist. 

Officers closed Eureka Way for several hours.

We've had a mostly sunny valley with a few more clouds over the mountains today, but it's been another beautiful day with warmer highs than yesterday. Much warmer weather is headed our way this weekend... enjoy, but stay cool!
